Welcome back to Bucharest for the final day of the PokerStars Festival Main Event. This €1,100 tournament smashed all Romanian records in terms of field sizes (736) and prize pools (a massive €706,560!), and in just a few hands the final table of seven is now down to just four after a crazy opening level.
Here’s a reminder of how they started the day, chip wise:
In the second hand of today’s action, we lost Romania’s very own Traian Bostan. He open-shoved for around 725,000 (with blinds at 30K/60K) and was called by Sam Grafton in big blind with the K♥9♣. Bostan held the T♥8♦ and would need to hit, but found nothing on the 5♦5♣7♠A♠6♠ runout. Bostan picked up €18,720 for seventh.
And then, in the very next hand, France’s Johann Eclapier was felted. This time it was Eclapier who open-jammed with the K♦Q♦ and was called by Patrick Bueno with the A♣K♥. There would be no queen and not enough diamonds on the 4♣7♥6♣9♠6♦ board to save him, and Eclapier went to collect his €26,091 for sixth.
A little later, following a Daniel Nietrzebka double up through Anil Ozdemir, we lost Patrick Bueno in fifth courtesy of a cruel ace on the river. He was all in with pocket tens against Nietrzebka’s ace-king, and the Barry Greenstein delivered the KO to Bueno, who will collect €34,400.
After such a flurry of early action, here’s how the chip stacks stand four-handed:
|Anil Olgun Ozdemir||6,800,000|
The top three are very deep, so we could be in for some serious poker from here on. Stay tuned to the PokerStars Blog for regular updates.
